Chinese Food

More than half of Brits (51%) order a takeaway on the day they return from holiday, according to a new survey.

Topping the poll of the takeaways people crave the most when they land back on home soil is Chinese, with close to three in 10 (28%) claiming this has been their go-to dish when arriving home. This is closely followed by Italian takeaways (24%) while just under a fifth (18%) of travellers seek the comfort of traditional British foods like fish and chips.

The data highlights that regionally, the amount of people who order takeaway food when they arrive home from holiday is highest in Newcastle – with just under two thirds [64%] admitting to doing this after their latest trip. By contrast, those in Norwich are least likely to order takeaway food after a holiday.

Looking into different age groups, holidaymakers aged between 25-44 are most likely to order an Italian takeaway to wash away those post-holiday blues. Whereas those aged 45 and over are most likely to opt for Chinese food.

The research by meal kit provider HelloFresh also shows that holidaymakers returning from Turkey and Italy are most likely to order the cuisine of the country they’ve been to, perhaps to continue the holiday feeling for a little while longer.
